We were commissioned by Canadian Business Magazine to shoot a series of portraits that looked like a classic daguerreotype. This portrait of Vice Media's CEO Shane Smith is one of our favorites from the shoot.
We used continuous lights versus strobe and built and small, dark portable black-out room for our subjects. We photographed them at an extremely shallow depth of field. And the final daguerreotype look was achieved in post.
Client was thrilled with the results. This image made the cover of the magazine.
